If you can’t talk to each other, then talk to me.
Are you experiencing problems in your relationship? My name is Trisha Higgs and I am a Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist for couples and individuals, serving Kent, Hildenborough, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells
Coronavirus: Covid-19 Statement of Policy
Because of the lock-down situation imposed by the Government in March, I am no longer able to offer therapy in person.
I am offering clients online therapy via Zoom, FaceTime or by telephone.
I hope to be able to offer in-person appointments as soon as is reasonably possible, and will then post that information on my website.
Best wishes to you all.
I studied and worked at the world renowned 'Tavistock Relationships' (TR) in London, a centre of excellence for Couples Counselling and Psychotherapy training, and research into couple relationships. I see couples and individuals, both heterosexual or same sex, in a partnership, or single.
Sometimes being in a relationship can feel lonely. Perhaps you have issues such as depression, juggling work and children, financial difficulties, significant and stressful life changes, or worries about your sexual relationship.
Or your relationship may have become too difficult, and you are wondering how to make it work. Perhaps you are are uncertain whether you want to stay together, either because of a betrayal such as an affair, constant arguments, or feeling that the spark has gone. Sometimes knowing that you and your partner have made the decision to talk to a Relationship Counsellor can make all the difference.
If you are currently single, you might want to explore relationship patterns, or be struggling with an issue such as depression or anxiety, and this may have affected your confidence. Or you might wonder why you find intimacy so difficult.
Take that first step and talk to me.
- I provide a stress free, comfortable and relaxed environment where we can think together without distractions, about difficult thoughts and feelings.
- I work in a non-judgemental way. There is no 'blaming and shaming'.
- My qualification in Couples Psychotherapy and Counselling is amongst the most prestigious in the field. I have an MSc in Relationship Counselling and Psychosexual Therapy (University of East London), gained after seven years of training and clinical experience, seeing couples and individuals at Tavistock Relationships.
- I am qualified to see individuals as well as couples, and can help with issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem and addictions.
- I have excellent people skills, having worked in the NHS for fifteen years.
